Swiss Almond Muesli

(8 servings)

  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup diced dried apples
  • 1/2 cup toasted wheat germ
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup slivered blanched almonds
  • 1/4 cup hulled but not toasted sunflower seeds (raw sunflower seeds)
  • 2 Tablespoons packed light brown sugar
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl or airtight container. Store in cool dry place or in refrigerator. Best eaten within a couple of weeks. Serve with milk.

To quickly toast the wheat germ, you can put it in a skillet over medium heat. Stirring often, fry just until fragrant and toasty in color.

A lovely, healthy mix of oats, apples, raisins, almonds and sunflower seeds with wheat germ for added nutrition.
